Our staff are Certified Exercise Physiologists (CEP) which enable us to give you repeatable and accurate measurements.
We will measure you just as we measure our athletes, or we can cater to any special requests for measurements you may have. We will reveal just what you’re made of. Is it fat? Is it lean mass? We’ll let you know, and give you recommendations on what you can and should do to improve your body composition.
Resting metabolic testing is an excellent test for individuals interested in weight loss and overall health. Everyone person has a unique metabolism that should be addressed on an individual basis.
- You will receive your metabolic rate. Is it high, low or average? i.e. 1200 calories / day. This then affects your nutrition intake.
- Substrate at rest. Do you burn fat well? Ideally, your metabolism should be 80% FAT and 20% CARBS. This is often not the case due to diet and exercise. From the RMR, we then recommend a look at your food intake. This helps put the pieces together and fill the gaps.
- Please bring in a 3 day food log prior to the RMR test. I.e. Tues, Thurs and Sat. Record everything you put digest; food and fluids. You can record this on a spreadsheet. The test is performed in the morning in a fasted state which means no food 12 hrs prior to. Water is OK.
- RMR testing days are Tues, Wed and Friday. 8:00, 9:00 or 10:00 AM.
RMR is also the easiest fitness test you will ever do! The measurement requires you to sit and breathe into the metabolic cart for 30 minutes. This type of testing determines your minimum caloric requirement for everyday living (kcals/day).

The TCR vision for our bike fitting service is to relegate clients’ aches and pains and improve their performance by fitting the bike to the individual and taking the whole picture into account.

The Ultimate Day In the Lab will will make sure your bike is fitted properly, help you understand how your body is currently burning fat or sugars, set a baseline so you will see real growth and structure your riding to “ride smarter” helping you maximize results based on your individualized needs.
